5.0 out of 5 stars 3600 MHZ with CL 16-18-18-38. Great LEDs
Reviewed in the United States on February 23, 2020
Great speed and timings. 3600 at 16-18-18-38. The colors and patterns look good. The LEDs are good and bright. The Crucial software is OK, and the LEDs all sync nicely. Running 2 packs of 2x16Gbs. One of the four sticks was not functional. Amazon was quick to replace. Works great on AMD 3700x with XMP. Would highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overclocking potential with great flair
Reviewed in the United States on June 8, 2020
Right out of the packaging this RAM looks really nice in my hands. Good shape, the heatspreaders are solid and the sticks have a low profile clearance. Very attractive and looks great inside my case. RAM clicked right into the slots with no issues.

Turning on my computer, I POSTed and went right to my desktop. Nice! Default RGB is a rainbow wave that looks pretty cool. Quite bright and vibrant but not overly so, just perfect imo. LED's are spread out nicely. I decided to change the RGB's using MSI's MysticLight software. No issues there, settings worked perfectly and stayed after reboot.

To get the speed advertised I booted into the bios and enabled my XMP profile (using an MSI B450 Tomahawk Max MOBO, for reference). I went to POST with no issues and it ran 3200MHz CL16 timings, as advertised. Did some MemTest64 for about 15 minutes, zero errors👍

Happy with the timings and speed but still curious I decided to do some manual overclocking. This essentially consists of going beyond the advertised speeds by adjusting frequency and tightening the timings in the BIOS manually instead of using a default XMP profile. Wow, I was impressed. For reference here, I am using a Ryzen 5 3600.

These sticks of RAM are Micron E-die, known to have great overclocking potential and be of excellent bin quality (its good silicon). With this processor and my aforementioned mobo, I was able to actually achieve 3600MHz and CL15 timings and speed 100% stable! This is with only 1.39V as well. Quite impressive IMO! Zero errors on the MemTest again. Insane value considering the premium price of comparable 3600 MHz sticks (usually coming with worse timings too). Im confident with more voltage I could even achieve CL14 stable, but im quite happy with this.

I've included a picture of the RAM in my system and my current timings/frequency. In the CPU-Z picture, note that because it's DDR RAM (double data rate) we multiply that figure by two to get 3600MHz.

With this overclocking potential and the beauty of the RGB and design, this RAM is an unbelievable value and a 10/10 choice. Whether you are a plug and play type or an overclocker, I highly encourage you to purchase this. Fast RAM for a gaming rig or any kind of productivity with a great price. Great product Crucial!

PS: Sorry my pictures aren't properly aligned!

3.0 out of 5 stars Single Rank Modules
Reviewed in the United States on January 1, 2021
I think I should bring this to the attention of everyone. These modules (2x16) are now single rank modules. You can tell when you get the package - it says M8FB1 which means its the Micron Rev B dies and not the Micron Rev E dies. Therefore Micron has effectively transitioned to making their 16gb modules as single rank and moved away from the Dual Rank that most of us are seeking. I ordered 3 of these sets - one from the actual Crucial website and 2 from amazon; all 3 are the single rank Rev B dies. I'm going to return all 3 and get the dual rank Gskillz Ripjaw V. Shame, I would have loved to have the Micron Rams in the my system.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive Memory
Reviewed in the United States on October 4, 2020
First off-I am able to run my Ryzen 2700x on an X370 Mb at 3600mhz....which shouldn't work. Previously, with Samsung B-die I was limited to 3200mhz. My machine would run 3400mhz with the B-die but was not stable. I have not fully tested the stability of these at 3600 yet but so far after Cinebench a few times and 3dmark...no crashes and no errors.

Likes:
This Micron memory is extremely friendly to Ryzen cpu
I love the low profile heatsink that includes RBG...they are the same height as Ballistix non-rbg memory.
I've just been running the RBG in asynchronous mode so far but I like it that way and the colors are sharp and not muted or muddled; they look really good.
32GB for 2 sticks of 16 GB each.

Dislikes:
??? Nothing so far.

Other:
Amazon lost the first package so it was never delivered. It was supposed to be a 1 day delivery. The second order was two days and that's fine, at least it got here.

I can't say enough about these Micron modules. I had 16GB DDR4 36000 Trident Z modules that would not run this speed on my system at all. I am shocked that the Ballistix are able to do so. My limitation right now is the motherboard, but I'd love to upgrade the MB and see how far I could overclock these babies. Your mileage may vary, but for me and my Ryzen system, this memory is the best!

5.0 out of 5 stars RECENSIONE COMPLETA - PERFETTE PER RYZEN
Reviewed in Italy on February 25, 2020
=== INDICE DELLA RECENSIONE ===
- PREMESSA
- SPECIFICHE
- TEST (con aggiornamento)
- CONCLUSIONI

PREMESSA:
La mia build è composta da un AMD Ryzen 5 1600x a 3966MHz sfortunato, montato su ASUS ROG B350-F.
Il mio processore è sfortunato perché oltre a non riuscire a rimanere stabile al 100% a 4GHz, mi ha fatto dannare il suo controller di memoria. In 2 anni ho cambiato 4 volte la RAM a causa della mia insoddisfazione: ho provato delle HyperX Predator da 3200MHz CL16 ma solo attivando l'XMP a 3000MHz ho trovato la stabilità.
Successivamente ho provato delle GSkill sempre da 3200MHz con chip Samsung b-die: ho beccato purtroppo dei banchetti con le memorie sicuramente fallate perché nemmeno a 2133MHz erano stabili.
Non mi sono arreso ed ho comprato un kit sempre Samsung b-die ma di TeamGroup ovvero le Dark Pro da 3600Mhz CL16: sicuramente overkill per il processore ma stavo perdendo le speranze di raggiungere i famosi 3200MHz. Ho lavorato parecchio per tentare di raggiungere i 3200MHz anche alzano i timings manualmente.
Un benchmark perfetto per le RAM è TM5 di 1usmus: dopo 30 cicli con 0 errori è possibile confermare la stabilità.
Con loro ho passato dei mesi favolosi perché sono riuscito ad impostarle a 3133MHz 14-14-14-34-54 raggiungendo ottime prestazioni: avendo il questo periodo bisogno di più RAM ed anche RGB, ho voluto provare questo nuovo modello di Crucial, curioso di provare il loro chip.
Non mi sono limitato a comprare 2 banchi ma ben 4 in modo da popolare tutti gli slot sulla scheda madre.

SPECIFICHE:
Queste nuove RAM di Crucial, montano un chip Micron e-die da 19nm come le Ballistix Sport LT.
Non posso parlare della versione MAX che oltre ad avere un dissipatore di calore di altissima qualità, hanno una frequenza di 4000MHz 18-19-19-39, perciò parlerò della versione NON MAX.
Confrontando le nuove RAM da 3600MHz con le Ballistix Sport LT da 3200MHz, queste nuove RAM oltre ad essere RGB, hanno i timings simili in XMP tenendo conto del vantaggio di frequenza.
Per i curiosi lascio i timings con XMP: CAS 16, RCD 18, RP 18, RAS 38, RC 58, FAW 38, RRDS 6 e RRDL 9.
Per altri dettagli, ho caricato una foto di Thaiphoon Burner.
Hanno un dissipatore di calore anodizzato in linea con gli altri produttori di RAM di colore Nero, Bianco o Rosso.
Non sono molto alte perciò possono essere inserite in sistemi piccoli e con spazio limitato.
Gli RGB sono molto luminosi e ben fatti: avendo una scheda madre Asus, ho testato gli effetti tramite Aura Sync.
Le RAM non verranno rilevate dal software, se prima non scaricate l'ultima versione disponibile.
Oltre Aura Sync, queste RAM sono compatibili anche con MSI Mystic Light e Gigabyte RGB Fusion.

TEST:
Se avete letto la premessa, sapere che non sono MAI riuscito ad essere stabile a 3200MHz.
Solo ed esclusivamente per curiosità e con 0 speranze, ho impostato i 3200MHz 14-15-15-36-56 ed ho lanciato 30 cicli di TM5... STABILE AL 100%. Dopo 2 anni, con 4 banchi di RAM per di più, solo riuscito a raggiungere la frequenza che volevo: i timings sono leggermente più alti delle Dark Pro di TeamGroup, ma poco male perchè su Ryzen è molto più importante la frequenza. In foto anche un test con Aida64 con il test di memoria.
Sicuramente possono salire sopra i 3600MHz con la build adatta, guadagnando buone performance.

AGGIORNAMENTO - 27/02/2020
Mi sono messo ad ottimizzare i timing secondari cercando di migliorare ancora le performance.
Come le Ballistix Sport LT, è possibile migliorare le prestazioni facilmente grazie al loro chip.
Avendo un Ryzen di prima generazione con una scheda madre B350, sono completamente soddisfatto.

CONCLUSIONI:
Consiglierei queste RAM?
Assolutamente si. Oltre ad essere fantastiche per Ryzen, sono convinto che per Ryzen 3000 siano perfette, perché hanno delle specifiche in grado di tirare tutta la potenza delle nuove CPU.
Non le comprerei per PC low budget, ma andrei ad occhi chiusi sulle Ballistix Sport LT.

SPERO DI ESSERE STATO UTILE :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing straight out of the box
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 28, 2020
This review is for 32Gb kit of 2x16 (I've purchased 2 of them for a total of 64 GB RAM)

Amazing value RAM and worked amazing straight out of the box with XMP on 3200 Mhz. Since then I've been able to overclock it mildly to @3600 CL16-18-18-36 @1.38v in my new PC build consisting:
-X570 MSI MPG GAMING PRO WI-FI (latest bios v1.6)
-AMD Ryzen 7 3700x (@4425 Mhz all cores @1.3625v stable)
-PSU - HX1000 80+ platinum
-GPU - 5700XT XFX THICK III Ultra
-256gb NMVE boot drive + 1000 GB 2.5ssd + 2000 GB 3.5 HDD
-64 GB RAM @3200 ??!!??!! (@3600 with new Crucial one)

My original RAm purchase was Corsair Vengeance LPX 2kits of 2x16@3200, BUT I've never been able to achieve this, neither with XMP on or manual play with the timings. The maximum speed that I've achieved was 2800. I've tried everything suggested on all manufacturing website from MSI and Corsair and still nothing. I've been forced to replace my RAM so after a short research I've ordered Crucial Ballistix 2x 2x16GB @3200 and worked amazing straight out of the box with XMP on. Since then I've been able to overclock it mildly to @3600 CL16-18-18-36 @1.38v

Obviously there is a BLINK to it, I mean RGB witch is quite bright and is working good enough on my MB, but TBH I've bought the RGB version just to have it but just tried it and never used it. Not because isn't good, but because I'm not RGB person (prefer nice and clean build).

Hopefully, this is helpful for anyone! Stay Safe!

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on April 25, 2020
Insane Value.

The price of this ram is nuts, prolly because its white, and to be fair I was pretty nervous about it, but for the money I was like, yolo.

It actually looks more silver when fitted. Which actually makes it tie in with my motherboard and my corsair aio cover.

RBG Wise the software worked perfect, monitors temps etc, the colours are super bright, the effects are actually really good to be honest. The amount of stock effects and customisation is pretty huts considering. I've tried a few rbg rams, including corsair, and I'd say even though it is yet another app, it's by far one of the best rbg apps I've tried, entirely blows RGB Fusion out the water, easily on par or better than icue.

Performance wise, these kits actually booted (my motherboard didn't detect a change in ram for some reason) and booted up at 3733mhz at c15 and 14/15 timings... These replaced a 16GB 4400 kit so although a BSOD I was pretty amazed.

It's running C16 16 16 16 32 atm, at 3733mhz with 1.35v which is nuts. I've not fiddled with the ram yet so timings could be even better.

I'm very very shocked and pleasantly surprised. Couldn't help but recommend these to any AMD user. (I'm on a 3700x with an auros elite x570).
